Gerry Breshears :: Salvation by works or salvation by faith?

  • “Absolutely salvation by works,” says Dr. Gerry Breshears, Professor of Theology at Western Seminary and Co-author with Mark Driscoll of several popular books on doctrine and the church. “But before you crucify me…what I’m not saying is ‘justification’ by works.” The difference between salvation and justification is subtle, but critical in our understanding of faith, grace and relationship with God.

    Nothing we can do can earn God’s acceptance or favor, but we can do good works as an outworking of the process of salvation, and God will approve of those good works.
